Heater Control Back-light
Hi,
What's the best way to replace the backlight bulb for the heater control panel in an 02 plate van.

RE: Heater Control Back-light
Hi Roadie,
Is it accessible if you take radio out?
Only guessing.Icon_scratch
But could be good place to start.
Will see what replies you get as I am thinking of replacing those bulbs with LED's.
Hopefully "fit and forget".Icon_thumright

RE: Heater Control Back-light
HBoL tells us to:-
1 Remove relevant panels on the facia.
2 Undo two upper retaining screws at each corner of the heater control unit.
3 Use small screwdriver to release the retaining lug at lower centre of the unit and then withdraw it from the facia.
4 Pivot the unit upwards and then release the clips at rear to disconnect the control cables.
5 You then have access to the bulbholders.

RE: Heater Control Back-light
right on the 07 1.6hdi its easy once you stop making it complicated


take off the facial around the radio dash on top, that exposes 2 screws holding on the front facia

take out the 2 torx head screws on top of the front facia panel, get a flat screwdriver and pop the front panel off starting from the bottom

this exposes the heater controls, you need to pop the black front off from the white surround i started from bottom right where theres a space for a flat screwdriver. pop along the bottom and the pop the clips on top.

its hard to pull out over the 3 control but does pop off.[/align]

3 bulbs and away you go.

Replaced mine last year (forgot to update post Icon_doh )
One had blown, so replaced all three. Used filament bulbs, not LED, as they give a spread of light which is what you need behind switches/knobs. LEDs are too focussed.
Have a look on fleabay (where else....), think I bought 10 for £2.
